Default At what age to subject kid to adult content on boat

The thread about boat conversation got me thinking and did not want to railroad. My kid is 13. I have been taking him offshore fishing and hunting for a few years but he has not been subjected to the realy extreme adult conversation and language as repeating these things at school would land him and me in the principals and counsellors offices. At 13, I figure he is ready to ease into it, and in fact is probably beginning to get into adult conversation with friends anyway.

My thought is they here enough of that stuff at school and don't need to here it at home and certainly not by parents/friends of parents, etc.

Whether he hears it elsewhere or not you're setting an example of how you think he should behave as an adult.

He's already heard most if not all of it at school or on TV, or online. Doesn't mean you can't set a good example, and hold him accountable if he steps outside your boundaries.

Let him know that just because others talk like that, does not mean he has to - just like you, right?

Kids do 10% of what you say; and 90% of what you do.

Slightly crude guy talk IMO is fine. I would just avoid any conversations re: banging his mom. That would be a bit weird.......... Poor kid might jump overboard.

I have a 13 y.o. nephew, and it is scary what they know at that age. His older brother gave me details in private about what he and his young teen friends know and talk about. I am not sure that you could even make those kids blush.

They can look up anything on their phones. Just remember that.

I will add to the above:

Why on earth would you want to subject either your son or daughter to cursing, raunch, and filth such as that thread spoke about as a teenager. When he's graduated from college, did his stint in the military and has tossed his tenth girlfriend to the curb, then maybe!!!!!

I never understood why grown men or women have to curse!

Great thread, I have been pondering the same thing. Just got back from a hunting trip to VA and would like it to be an annual thing taking my 13 yr old. It got pretty salty, all the stories and such...wondering when he can go with me, I was thinking 18!

Trust me ,he knows.He aint dumb is he?
Look ,if someone says something funny,or curses while he's there
that's a slip[ ,no need to make it a priority .Look parents should be parents not friends.I'm not criticizing ,I just see too much of it.They're your kids ,not your friends.Before you smoke me ,know that when my dad died ,I was 17 ,and helped raise 9 kids.I changed diapers,put brother in bathtub of cold water before rushing him to a construction site for a ride to a hospital ,chased an ambulance after kid brother was shot by gangbangers,and went to jail for aggravated assault on said gangbanger(all charges dropped ,he took my advice ,and didn't come to court the 2nd time(-inlaws are made)I did all a parent would do ,and more.

I have 4 kids 21-13 and they all spend a ton of time on the boat with me. I am know that they talk a certain way and hear things at school, but I try not to cuss around them. I am very close with all my kids but they know I am there father and not there friend and I try my best to act that way when I am with them. My 20 year old let a f bomb fly the other night when we lost a 100lb tarpon at the boat and I asked him to please not talk that way around me. They are respectful kids and I have 2 in the engineering program at FSU and will have a third there next year so I like to think I am doing something right.

No reason to do that in front of kids. However when my wife loses a big fish.... all bets are off.

There's deer camp talk and there's fish camp / boat talk.

It stays there.

Even though my guys are more than likely exposed to it through friends and especially Call of Duty I myself refrain - as much as possible to set the best example.

Once you go down that road it is hard to go back.
